Home Office

It is Friday which means it is time for "Show Us Where You Live" over at KellysKorner! I was not sure I was going to be able to participate this week due to the ton of stuff I am having to do to get ready for the move but then I remembered I had already taken pics and downloaded them! Yeah! 

This is the Before picture of my sewing room/office/4th bedroom from abt a month ago. Kinda scary I must admit! I was in the midst of reorganizing so it would be not so embarrassing for potential buyers to see. 

Another Before picture but see there in the background some resemblance of order over on the bookcase! I was making progress even at 1 am! 

After a full day this is what the result was. A wonderful neat and organized sewing room/office/4th bedroom that I just love to pieces! 

This is my favorite redo. I use to have all of my fabric stacked on top of each other in the closet on my buffet. It was so hard to get to in there but now a piece of cake! I forgot to take a pic of the closet now so I will have to do that and post it later. 
Thanx for stopping over! Have a wonderful weekend!

This past weekend hubby and I went hunting  for our new nest in Houston. We walked thru over 20 nests and the funny thing about it all is that the nests that were at the top of our list actually ended up at the bottom and the ones at the bottom actually ended up in our top three pics. We were a little discouraged for the sheer fact that the plans we had made were not working out. We had wanted our new nest to be in the original section of our old community so we could be walking distance to the school and friends. That was not the plan for us from above. There really was nothing that fit our needs there and the one nest we were really interested in went under contract. In the end though we did finally end up finding a beautiful nest. It was LAST on my list because there are power lines that run parallel to the fence in the backyard. It was top on hubby's list because it was a builder close out and has been sitting there since we moved to Cajun Country 2 yrs ago. He could smell a bargain nest!

BEFORE: This is our current nest in the state that we purchased it 2 yrs ago. I was not crazy abt this nest. This nest needed a lot of work for it to feel like home. We had toadd  landscaping, fencing, gutters and then all of the pretties as we call them to make our nest feel like a home.

AFTER: This is our nest now after two years and lots of love. I now HATE to leave this nest but I knew all along that this nest was not the nest we would be staying in. If we could pick this nest up and take it with us we would. I will miss her tall stately plantation like columns. I will miss my long front porch with my bistro set and bench. I will miss our very tall double front doors. Most of all I will miss our landscaping. We pray that our nest will be bought by another loving family that will  take as good care of her as we have.

This is the new nest! She is very beautiful and a bargain definitely in the waiting! We just could not pass her up. After two nights of staying up till 3 am worrying and praying to God to guide us I finally had a peace come over me on the second night. This nest has everything we wanted but did not think we would get in our budget. We actually ended up getting an additional amount off the already steeply discounted price that we had offered. So now we are just waiting for our nest to get inspected and then closing at the end of the month. There are so many possibilities for this nest and I know we can make it even  more beautiful once we move in. I know feel as if this nest was just waiting for us these past two years. I can see my boys running up and down the stairs and filling the nest with laughter and love already. Thank you God for leading us to our new nest!

P.s The power pole is actually in our neighbors backyard!:)

Well craziness has finally arrived at our nest! This weekend was a whirlwind of house hunting in Houston. After looking at over 20 some homes we finally put an offer on one this morning before heading back to Cajun Country. We should know something by tomorrow lunchtime.
In the meantime thank you to all who have left comments thus far! I have started reading them but have not had time to respond. I will soon though I promise! Busy day tomorrow with waiting on the offer to go through, meeting with a Realtor here, finishing up a custom order, mailing orders from last week and keeping the house up to par!
I will post more fun stuff soon!
